I was feeling a little silly owning both an Xbox One and a PS4, but then I thought of it this way: my original Xbox is fried and I never owned a 360. Thanks to Xbone’s backwards compatability, I essentially have three consoles in one here.
You shouldn't feel silly, that way you get to experience as many games as possible (pick and choose platform, PS4 exclusives that won't be playable on a PC for quite some time if ever and Xbox One exclusives that are more easier to access than their potentially more powerful PC versions).
Using your Xbox One as a backwards compatible machine is a bit restricted on what games you can play though. It's good that its there but if you're a fan of licensed games, certain desirable Sega titles and older racing games, well it is a bit on the screwed side.
The backwards compatibility is a bit restrictive, yes. But so far just about everything from last gen I care about is available on there in some form or another, so I’m happy.
It’s definitely better than Sony’s current approach to BC which is basically “What, people want to actually play games that are over four years old!? Okay fine, we’ll let you stream them. Maybe. Meh.”
